Lee Corso is one of college football’s most knowledgeable, opinionated and entertaining analysts on ESPN’s College GameDay.
He is famous for ending every weekly show with his mascot headgear prediction, choosing who he thinks will win GameDay‘s featured matchup by donning the headpiece of the school’s mascot.
Corso joined ESPN in 1987 and is the only original GameDay on-air personality (he was a contributor in 1987-88 and joined as an analyst in 1989). In the photo gallery above, see some of Corso’s picks from this season of college football.
